“Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger.” ― Ron Paul
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. – Thomas Jefferson
1-Japan is a small Island relatively easily controlled
2-Japan had an enormous population reset button courtesy of WW2
3-Japan does not have to share two expansive land borders where illegal items can be smuggled
and finally...and most importantly...
4-Japans gangs do exactly what US gangs do. They manage to get illegal drugs and guns.
“Japan is basically a place where only yakuza and cops have guns,” Detective X stated. “We fire our guns less, so most of the shootings in Japan are yakuza versus yakuza — and as long as the yakuza are killing each other, the general public and the police didn’t seem to mind. But not anymore. There have been too many stray bullets.”
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
2) Most of your points do little to address mine (might as well add a bullet point for tea in china)
3)The level of gun crime in japan is ridiculously low. So I find it odd that you're asserting there is some gun crime issue there (there were 11 gun related homicides in 2008)
